This workshop day is an opportunity for artists to respond to the work on our stages and consider how the themes and concepts of this work can influence our own practice and help to shape the way that we work. It is also an opportunity to connect with fellow artists and to work directly with the Creative Programmes team at Curve to encourage future collaboration.
This day is inspired by our two Made at Curve Summer productions, Billy Elliot the Musical and Finding Home. Both encourage us to question what community really means and the role that creativity plays in this. There will be two practical workshops with a light lunch included and opportunities to connect with fellow artists.
Here’s what you can expect from the day
- 11am – 1.15pm – Class and Opportunity Workshop – This workshop is a practical exploration of class in theatre, considering how it shapes the narratives that audiences have access to and the impact this has on getting work made. It is open to artists of all disciplines.
- 1.15pm – 2pm – Light Lunch on the Mez (Once you have booked you will be asked to complete an access and dietary requirement form)
- 2pm – 4.30pm – Co-creating Leicester workshop and project planning.
